ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Could It Be” is my second CD of solo acoustic steel string guitar music and it consists of a collection of fourteen original compositions which range to faster bluesy pieces to slower ballads. My background in guitar had been in playing classical guitar. A couple of years ago for a chance of pace I decided to start writing my own music, but more in the fingerstyle area than that of the classical guitar.

On most of the songs I tried to maintain the natural sound of the guitar by using little or no sound processing. The guitars played on this CD are a Mark Blanchard Bristlecone and a Collings C10 Deluxe. The microphones used were a pair of Microtech Gefell M300s.

Yes, it could! Fabulous acoustic guitar music!
A wonderful collection of acoustic guitar tunes. The songs are excellent and the performance masterful. Derek makes it sound all too easy with his smooth playing. If you like solo acoustic guitar music, this is a must have. If you don't like solo acoustic guitar music, this CD might change your mind.

Derek Coombs hits the mark again!
Once again Mr. Coombs has compiled a wonderful collection of original acoustic fingerstyle tunes dominated by memorable melodies, rock solid playing, and excellent recorded sound. A welcome followup to his wonderful first effort, Apple Juice. Both highly recommended.

Delightfully creative acoustic guitar arrangements anyone will enjoy
Derek is one of the hardest working and creative guitarists I have found. His arrangements cross the lines of modern fingerstyle, blues and rock and are executed with classical precision. The recording quality is especially good and everytime I listen to his music I discover another cool passage I missed before. Very fresh stuff that also triggers many ideas in my own playing. Being able to play guitar tunes with enough melody, rhythm and content to keep a listener interested is a huge challenge but he rises to this task with charming tunes that wont grow old. If you are a guitarist or just need some great driving music this CD is a great value and one for the collection.

Talented Guitarist/Composer comes through!
I love original fingerstyle compositions on acoustic guitar that draw on varied styles and evoke a wide range of emotions from the listener. Dereck is a tremendously talented player/composer and he really delivered in all aspects with this effort. Each selection in this CD has its distinctive character and is superbly played by the artist. A worthy addition to any music library.
